Last week, reports were shared that Blizzard had officially started a “Friends and Family Alpha” for Diablo 4.
This alpha test would go beyond employee-only tests and invite trusted friends and family to play the current version of Diablo 4but only under strict NDA.
The test leaks NDA’d are rare, particularly when only “trusted” people are invited, but it seems that some players are eager to share information about Diablo 4 with the audience.
The most prominent leak features several screenshots taken from the initial menus of Diablo 4 alpha. The UI clearly uses temporary resources, but there are some intriguing revelations nonetheless.
The most outstanding confirmation is the return of the seasons of Diablo 3. As a gameplay option allows players to create a character that participates in the current season’s competitive progression race.
Seasons typically have unique gear and exclusive rewards available, with characters and content only carrying over to regular play after the season ends.
Other revelations within the menus of Diablo 4 alpha they are less clear as to whether they are finished features or not. For example, there’s a look at the character creation system of Diablo 4but it may only be part of what will be available.
The four menus displayed for Diablo 4 character creation include “Face and Body”, “Hair”, “Accessories” and “Color”
These options are the ones that are displayed after choosing the male barbarian.

Two other cool features seen in the menus include an optional tutorial and a difficulty menu.
The tutorial offers the player two options, “More targeting” and “Less targeting”. More orientation will provide the player with detailed tutorials and is recommended for new players. Less orientation it will only offer a “minimal” address and only for the new functions of Diablo 4.
